Hi.

Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Currently / / September

Currently / / September Celebrating | Jordan and I share a birthday and it's tomorrow! On Sunday we're having a belated birthday party for Phoenix/we-bought-a-house party. We tend to be the kind of friends who go to other people's houses for parties versus host our own (I think because we had a kid later than many of our friends), but I'm excited for an excuse to actually use the many serving platters I own!

Watching | The West Wing (we're in season three) and The US Open. Football season is also here, which is very exciting. I barely remember football season last year.

Welcoming | The cooler temperatures and slower days. I know some people thrive in the heat, but I get rather exhausted by the heat of the summer. The weather change inspires me (I've been on a purging binge). I'm ready for daily walks with Phoenix again too.

Preparing | Our New York City trip next month is approaching quickly. October felt much further away when we purchased our plane tickets in July. I still have a few more accommodations to nail down and then we will move on to our day-to-day plans.

New York City is my ideal kind of city for vacations. I love walking everywhere, but also accessing public transportation easily. London is also like this. I know many people feel overwhelmed in large cities, but I find them comforting.

Photographing | It's been awhile since I've taken any photos. ;-) Jordan is the family photographer. BUT, I'm always snapping moments with Phoenix.

Linking with Anne and Lowanda.
